Happy almost weekend friends!! I am dying for the weekend to get here!! I’m not always stoked for weekends because sometimes Ben or myself have to work, but this weekend is going to be a good one! Ben’s official birthday is Saturday (he is turning 30 OMG lol) and we leave for Monterey California tomorrow for a mini family vacation!! Monterey is our FAVORITE! It is peaceful, beautiful and feels like we are in another world! I love the cooler temps that we experience there, the yummy food, and the beautiful beaches! We went last year for Ben’s birthday and vowed to make it an annual trip!  Do you all have family vacations that you do every year or that you did every year as a child?! I would love to hear!

On to the stripes and fringe situation!!! This cold shoulder maxi dress is courtesy of Shop Pink Blush. I’m kind of obsessed with anything that has my shoulders out! It is just a really trendy/yet flattering look right now.  It does help that Shop Pink Blush makes some of the most comfortable dresses I have ever worn.  I am not just saying that! Everything I have from them wears so well, lasts for ages and looks amazing on! They started out as a maternity only clothing line and have recently branched out into women’s fashion as well!

Next I would like to highlight this killer bag from Boho Bags The Original. Fringe anything makes me happy and the detailing on this bag is everything!! Crossbody’s are so in right now and so practical for a mama!! Lastly, I would like to point out Larimar Online Shop where their handcrafted jewelry comes out of the Dominican Republic.  I am wearing the adjustable Dolphin Stone ring.  Just stunning!! I love simple pieces so much.  This is so perfect for my little collection!  So what do you think about this combo!? I never wear sneakers btw, but I was sold on these classics that hubby bought for my birthday last month! Hope you all have an amazing rest of your week and weekend! Thank you for stopping by the blog!! Much love,


Ruthie xo
